Described as ‘absolute bliss’ and ‘wonderfully peaceful’ by previous guests, our Character Farm Cottages offer true tranquillity near the village of Abbotsbury, a short drive from the seaside town of Weymouth and within walking distance of the stunning Jurassic Coast. We have seven self-catering cottages in total situated on our beautiful and extensive working dairy farm where we provide a wholesome family holiday experience rare in modern times. Our cottages are affordable but well-maintained and our service and hospitality are exceptional, described as ‘friendly and helpful’ with a ‘warm welcome’.
Our cottages are available for weekly holidays all year and for off-season short breaks. The properties are near some of Dorset’s most spectacular attractions and only a mile from Chesil Beach (Broadchurch territory!) which can be seen from most of the farm.
